Title: v26 Beta thank you's!
Post by: mwb1100 on July 31, 2021, 04:44:18 pm
I haven't tried the Beta out yet, but I'm very excited about these new things:

  - Project > New... dialog adds ability to directly add a tree of source files, recursively or as a wildcard.
  - Project > New... will set the project working directory if the source tree added differs from the project directory.

  - By default, when creating a new file without specifying a filename sets the filename to something like "Untitled YYYY-MM-DD". You can turn this new feature off. This makes it easier to identify Untitled files and use backup history. Also this allows you to save untitled files without specifying a name. If you close or rename (Save As) an Untitled file, the temp file will be deleted if necessary.

I hope that for this last one the temporary files will survive a crash (or one of those damned Windows Update forced overnight reboot) - or even a normal close (without getting a nag to save them) - and be brought back up on next start.

Thank you for adding these features.
